Trending Down: Gregori Rivero, C, Lakewood
The Phillies are set up pretty well at catcher with Jorge Alfaro behind the dish, but some of these prospects may be fighting to be his backup in years to come.
Rivero is not off to a strong start in trying to earn that role later on in his career. He is hitting .196 this year with 2 home runs and 12 RBI as of June 15th. He has a measly 6 extra base hits and has just 2 hits in his last 31 at-bats.
It won’t really affect the Phillies’ future if he pans out or not, but at the moment, he doesn’t seem to be making strides towards the big leagues.
